Cassandra Jones

October 8, 2009

Visiting artist Cassandra C. Jones uses a lot of found images to create new works. On her website, her current works use birds (mostly flamingos). She also has some interesting videos that combine found images with a similar element (sunset, moon, birds, snowball), and layers them in a way that they become animated even though the context between each image is completely different. Linking them together with the single element with different contexts sort of made the world feel a lot smaller. Being able to collect different images from around the world and have them seamlessly connect made me feel somewhat insignificant… but also connected to other places of the world. Almost like the whole “I’m looking at the same moon” kind of thing. Small world.
